Cellars Collection - Eleven 100 Point Offerings

What is Heritage Clone and why are the critics excited about it? James Suckling says of the 2019 Vintage, "RockStar winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown made a perfect wine with the second release from Schrader that comes from a heritage clone of To Kalon cabernet sauvignon and is produced in tiny quantities. I can’t remember tasting anything like this single-parcel offering, which has incredible depth and seamless tannins as well as seductive aromas of exotic fruits."

“Every time I taste it, it shows this uniquely exotic fruit character,” Brown said during the tasting. He said that the massal-selected clone of cab was developed from the 1970s and some of the best cuttings used for the great Robert Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserves of the time.

Schrader Cellars has achieved more than thirty-five 100-point scores and countless accolades during its journey to the top of the Napa Cabernet Sauvignon pyramid. A classic Napa Valley cult wine, Schrader will always be a favorite among fine-wine lovers.

Critical Acclaim:

2019 Schrader Cellars Heritage Clone | "This is so exotic and exciting, with crushed blackcurrant, cassis, raspberry and tangerine aromas that follow through to very rough, silky tannins that fill your mouth. It goes on for minutes. Intense flavors at the finish, yet it’s linear and so long and seamless. Crunchy. Amazing wine. Drinkable now, but better after 2025." - James Suckling Sept 2022

100 Points ⁠— James Suckling

2015 Schrader Cellars Beckstoffer To Kalon T6 | "Coming from the Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard, block D2 planted to clone 6, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon T6 sports a deep garnet-purple color and fantastically fragrant nose of Sichuan pepper, unsmoked cigars, potpourri, red loam and forest floor over a core of black forest cake, blackberry preserves and baked plums plus touches of dried Mediterranean herbs and smoked meats. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is full-on seductive, with wonderfully perfumed layers emerging through the frame of very finely knit yet firm tannins, finishing with epic length and depth. 286 cases produced." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown Dec 2017

2018 Schrader Cellars Beckstoffer To Kalon CCS | "Just pure gold, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard CCS is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, sourced from one of California's greatest terroirs, that was brought up in 100% new French oak. This dense purple-colored effort has a magical bouquet of pure creme de cassis, smoke tobacco, white flowers, crushed stone, truffle, and hints of chocolate. Possessing full-bodied richness, this beauty builds incrementally on the palate, showing lots of ripe, polished tannins, no hard edges, and a rare mix of power, structure, and elegance that's something to behold. Napa Cabernet Sauvignon, or red wine for that matter, just doesn't get any better. Hats off to winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown for yet another majestic, singular wine that's as good as it gets." - Jeb Dunnuck Jan 2021
